Since the beginning of their foundation in 2014, VALKEAT always has been different. Modernizing the sounds and playing styles of the ancient Finnish instrument kantele, that according to legends was first played by Väinämöinen in the Finnish national epic Kalevala, the band has created their own unique soundscapes by melting together traditional Finnish kantele-music and modern metal/rock to shape a sound of their own.
Now the Finnish newcomers VALKEAT sign a worldwide record deal with REAPER ENTERTAINMENT and are ready to unleash their brand new album in 2023!
Mastermind Miikka comments:
” We at Valkeat camp are happy to announce that we have teamed up with Reaper Entertainment to bring you our vision of modern folk metal! Bringing this vision alive and creating our second studio album was a long process that took lots of patience and dedication, and we could not be happier to announce that it will be see the light of day through Reaper Entertainment. We both share the common trait of being new and rising forces in the scene, so it’s a natural partnership for us to forge. Can’t wait for you all to hear what we have created!“
Greg from Reaper Entertainment adds:
” This signing is once again an honor and we are super stoked to welcome VALKEAT to the Reaper-Family! When we listened to the first tunes of this amazing band we were absolutely sure that VALKEAT is the perfect match for Reaper and that we will see the band rising to one of Finland’s biggest Metal acts in the next years! Be ready for the next generation of folk metal! And be ready for one of the best releases of 2023!”
